Masters of the guitar (2015)

A film made especially for the major re-launch night of Sky Arts in June 2015. In MASTERS OF THE GUITAR, ten great players of the instrument – from Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi to Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Richard Hawley to Wilko Johnson & Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore – were invited to choose the one guitarist that most inspired them.

In ten impressionistic & personal, fascinating vignettes, they each reveal their choices – and why. Presented by Edith Bowman.
